CarbonfreeDC wants to launch an Extreme Green Neighborhood Makeover — and has beat out 2,500 others to become one of 10 finalists in the Green Effect competition sponsored by National Geographic and SunChips.
The plan? To sponsor 20 homes on a city block in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Washington, DC, helping the families green their homes and lower their energy bills. The five best ideas will win $20,000.
Can you volunteer to star in the video? On Sunday at 4:30, CarbonfreeDC needs volunteers to star in the video it will post to the contest site. Come to National Geographic Museum on Sunday at 4:30 p.m. for the filming, and stay for drinks and snacks at Beacon Bar & Grill.
